nuclear more than us. the people in saudi arabia, and egypt, jordan, so for that matter i think we will have to take action. and if the u.s. would decide to sit idly by and watch and to pray in order to take action, israel will have to do it by itself. it will not be easy. it will be harder. to deal with retaliation not only from iran. they will be nation's flying in from iran, from lebanon, hezbollah will join. hamas in gaza will send hundreds of missiles. but if we have to choose today between the option of allowing iran to become nuclear, to the option of fighting ourselves, i think the is a clear message what we will do. and the question is if will do with the u.s. or without the u.s., we are asking today. one of the main points of my book, i know many people here are involved with the middle east is the issue of two-state solution. for the last 20 years we hear about two-state solution. you must finish the conflict, the resolution will be a palestinian state. and president obama adopted this approach and she's calling upon us, the israelis to build a palestinian state and go b

said syrians had fled the country, almost a third had fled. jordan and the u.n. are working to get children back in school but there are challenges. take a listen. >> there are two problems here in jordan. one is that i was just at the zatari camp near the border where there are about 30,000 refugees and where you started from scratch with unhcr and others just a couple months ago and we are building schools and finding teachers, both jordanian and syrian to teach the kids, but the problem is winter is coming and it is all tents right now. so urgently we are working to bring in prefabricated buildings and others. but about two-thirds of the refugees from syria have scattered in jordan and are living in communities where we are working to bring them into schools because with typical arab hospitality, the jordanians are welcoming them into the public school system. so there's a lot of work there. the main problem, of course, is all the schools in syria. we are seeing a tenth of them damaged. there are a lot of kids out of school and we are very actively trying to get them into school

, came to san francisco from jordan and started a small corner store on polk street. he's someone that our neighborhood and our residents on polk street knew, had an enormous heart and great smile. ready to help those in need and someone who was very much a part of a wonderful and loving family and community. and all the best to his family. and i also have an in memoriam for bob [speaker not understood] who some of you may know, was a first generation san francisco an who married and raised four children here including community leader sam ladder. after graduating from u.c. berkeley and hastings law school, bob joined a family firm and became active in numerous civic organizations, particularly within the jewish community as well as on our san francisco human rights commission. he also had a love of politics and successfully ran the mccarthy campaign for the board of supervisors. and i know that he will be missed dearly by the community and his family. my third in memoriam is for gary cray who is known by many in the telegraph hill community, my district, as the filbert steps gard
in october 2011, on the plans. we met with him in person, don jordan. he went through how incredibly complex, it's risky. he said worker safety is a big issue. everything is underground so it's highly technical work. i have a quote from mr. carp, who is the geoengineer on this project. says the success of grouting is highly dependent on the skill of the speciality subcontractor. it is not a procedure that always produces the desirable results. structures near the area being grouted somebody monitored and grouting should be discontinued and care taken in intrusion of conduits. finally, i have a letter from mr. carp, but i don't think was in their packet to you, but it's dated march 11, 2012 -- >> how long is it. >> i'm not going to read it. >> your time is up. >> this whole page and a half is just about worrying about the garage, roof, and the possibility of it caving in, and how it could be structured differently to make it more stress resistant, et cetera. >> you can have time on rebuttal. >> okay. thank you very much. >> ms. dick. >> good evening, madam commissioner and members, ilene dick

, and they have a track record of being able to forge these peace agreements. they succeeded with jordan. they succeeded with egypt. i'm sure that we're going to see more success there, also. it's got to be a commitment of the united states of america, though. and i can promise you, in a mccain-palin administration, that commitment is there to work with our friends in israel. >> senator? >> gwen, no one in the united states senate has been a better friend to israel than joe biden. i would have never, ever joined this ticket were i not absolutely sure barack obama shared my passion. but you asked a question about whether or not this administration's policy had made sense or something to that effect. it has been an abject failure, this administration's policy. in fairness to secretary rice, she's trying to turn it around now in the seventh or eighth year. here's what the president said when we said no. he insisted on elections on the west bank, when i said, and others said, and barack obama said, "big mistake. hamas will win. you'll legitimize them." what happened. hamas won. when we kicke
